In "Forever Hunky: Ageless Action Heroes," Dave Kehr's New York Times piece today on how the likes of Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford and Sylvester Stallone are apparently keeping the stopper in the sandglass of time, he produced an eye-catching sentence.
"Today, in a culture blessed with Botox, steroids, sophisticated plastic surgery and digital retouching techniques, Sylvester Stallone at 61 can play the same hypertrophied action hero, John Rambo, he first interpreted in 1982."
"Interpreted" is a great word on so many levels.
